My first suggestion for controlling dental problems from sugar consumption is to confine the intake of sweets to mealtimes. If your child only has sweets at these times there is a limit, biologically speaking, to the destructive phase of the sweets. At the fairs and festivals its much harder to restrict these consumption times. A thorough brushing and flossing would be my strong recommendation. If there is ever a time to floss the teeth, it would be now. I marvel at the confections that are at these events, from cotton candy to mega-sized sodas. Let’s face it, though. We all splurge and have our favorite sweets. Having a plan to control the deleterious effects is key!
